Movies all over the world do not only rely on the adult actors, but also the younger ones who make the movie experience wholesome and complete. What is more adorable than cute kids portraying roles and nailing them in movies alongside many experienced adults. Our Bollywood movies had many Child actors with iconic roles played. Years have passed and the kids are not kids anymore. Here is how 10 of them look now.
10. Pooja Ruparel
She has made her debut in a Shah Rukh Khan movie, where she plays the role of an Orphan girl named ‘Munna’. This was a limited role. She got considerable recognition after her role as ‘Chutki’, younger sister of Kajol in DDLJ, in the year 1995. It was after this Pooja has got many acting roles, most important ones being the Anil Kapoor’s ’24’. Very unrecognisable now.
9. Parzan Dastur
One dialogue, ‘Jalebi’, in a Cooking oil commercial by this cute kid has landed him a role in the ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ movie of Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. In this Karan Johar franchise, this little kid had one such similar small dialogue which became iconic. The ‘Tussi Jaa Rahe Ho’ kid is this Parzan Dastur, who has bagged many other roles in movies after this.
8. Anuj Pandit Sharma
Another child actor with an iconic role was the kid who played Hrithik Roshan’s Sardar Friend in the movie ‘Koi Mil Gaya’. The witty comic and confident role he played has landed him many other movies like ‘Parvarish’. He is all grown up and is soon planning his comeback in the Bollywood industry.
7. Omkar Kapoor
The 2015 movie ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnaama 2’ had Omkar in it. And we tend to recognise him from that role. But, prior to this, he was a child actor. His most iconic performance was a dance bit in the movie ‘Masoom’. Omkar’s other movies are ‘Judwa’, ‘Hero No 1’, ‘Judaai’ and ‘Mela’.
6. Shweta Basu Prasad
As a child actor, she was absolutely brilliant. So brilliant that she even received a National Award for her performance in the movie ‘Makdee’, directed by Vishal Bharadwaj. After which she was seen in many television projects and even tried her luck in South Indian movies. But after an open allegation, she was involved in a huge controversy. After which she was seen less and now is Happily Married.
5. Darsheel Safary
Who does not remember the young kid in the Aamir Khan movie, ‘Taare Zameen Par’. It is our buck-toothed Darsheel Safary in the role of a Dyslexic Child. After this movie, he was seen in other projects as well but they did not do well at the Boxoffice. So, now all grown up he is planning to make another comeback through ‘Quickie’.
4. Sana Saeed
Playing the role of Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter in the movie ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ this young girl has already made her comeback to the industry. She played a significant role in the Karan Johar movie, ‘Student Of The Year’. Remembered for her cute antics, and her suave rude behaviour and also her original sweet nature in the celebrity dance show ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’. And also the reality show ‘Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi’.
3. Aditya Narayan
Also known for his singing voice, this kid is the son of the famous singer Udit Narayan. Aditya as a young kid was seen in the movies like ‘Rangeela’ and ‘Pardes’. Also seen acting in some Salman Khan movies later. But as a grown up he tried to test his luck at the Box office but failed. So he is now more of a singer than an actor.
2. Hansika Motwani
Many child actors from the movie ‘Koi Mil Gaya’ have become good actors in their later times. One such girl was Hansika, who was also in the movie as Hritik’s friend. She has also played a significant role in the Television program ‘Shakalaka Boom Boom’. In her later years, she has opted for south Indian movies and she has made her mark very well. Now, she is planning on doing a comeback in Bollywood.
1. Imran Khan
The ‘Jaane Thu Ya Jaane Na’ actor was also seen in many roles as a child actor. He usually played the younger self of his uncle, Aamir Khan in his movies. ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ and ‘Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar’ were the movies he was seen portraying the above-said roles. Later he pursued acting as a course in the US and did some movies here. Now he has taken a break and enjoying his Married Life.
